Splatoon 3 channels all sorts of young and hip themes, but it seems the third entry has also taken some inspiration from a number of popular movie series from around the 1980s. Warning: potential spoilers ahead!

As noticed by a number of Inklings and Octolings across multiple social media platforms, the latest outing has some items and rewards that seemingly pay tribute to movies like Back to the Future, Star Wars and perhaps even Ghostbusters.

Apart from Marty McFly's visor and the Doc's glasses, it seems Splatoon 3 may also have a reference to the 'Keymaster helmet' from Ghostbusters (known in-game as the Brain Strainer) and the Rebel pilot helmets featured in Star Wars (known as the "Astro helmet" in-game). Below are some more images of this Grizzco gear:
